Niki Feijen photographs a world long forgotten. A world which most of us would rather not visit — full of rotting beams, crumbling masonry, and mildew blooms. Yet through his attention to detail and use of light, he makes these abandoned spaces look… beautiful. Poetic even. Coats are left on racks, empty bottles collect dust, and moss grows unchecked.
We spoke with the 38-year-old Dutch photographer this week, in the lead-up to Halloween, about his imagery, eye for detail, and most unexplainable encounters.
